head-start to home cooked. in dim several initiatives on a california appellate may come down to undecided voters. tonight kron4's dan kerman looks at the latest poll on proposition 34. if passed, it would repeal the death penalty. california's death row could assume mission its doors for good. the new field poll shows a majority of californians favor proposition 34. which would repeal the death penalty 45 percent say they would vote yes 38 percent oppose the measure and 70 percent remained undecided. that's a significant increase in support from the pull of taken in september. when " yes " the voters' trust " no " voters 45-42%. field director mark di camillo suspect it is unusual to see such a reversal and it changing attitudes about what would cost the state less money. >> a large majority would think that it would be easier to put them into prison for life but now the opinions have changed, dramatically. with this modification of this poll if the lawyers think it is more expensive to do the death penalty when it is being implemented. with all of these appeals and backlogs
it to their advantage in states like illinois. california is a whole different story where you have an independent commission drawing the lines there. it really will dramatically she control of congress. >> i was simply going to make the point about illinois. the viewers don't think it's only the republicans who are redrawing districts. democrats did the exact same thing in illinois, and we'll see what the results are. sometimes they draw districts expecting a certain outcome and the voters srprise them. >> brown: while we're talking about the how, because earlier we talked about the senate in aw kind of bigger picture. stu, remind us about the house situation. 435 seats are up in the house but not all 435 are competitive. only about 70 or so are really worth watching for the chance of one party to steal a seat from the other party. the democrats need 25 seats in order toigate majority and presumably reinstall california, nancy pelosi as speaker beor as she once was. that seems unlikely. the democrats have said we have enough seats in play, and when we get out west, california, washington, nevada,
the latest edition of california political week or cal-peak, this speaks to what we were talking about. how the republican party has lost its edge particularly among latinos, women young voters. in california, my state california republican party used to have 63.2% of voter registration. registered voters in california. republicans. today, for the first time, voter -- republican voter registration in california, this is according to cal-peak has fallen below 30%. democrats hold every statewide office and both the united states senators and of course the big majority of the united states congressional delegation. republican party bob mulholland use to the work for me as political director of the party. is quoted as saying wolves have a better chance of getting off the endangered species list than republicans.

. california -- he is going to win. it will put barack obama over. he is going to pick up a couple of those other states as well. new york has already gotten in new jersey and i want to stress here that they are not officially written off yet. those are the states that barack obama almost by definition wins. therein lies the argument for mitt romney to counter that with an unnecessary win in florida and he has to pick up virginia. you know, you lose ohio and with the rest of the states that are not called for. you have to win them all. therein lies the difficult math. not impossible, but difficult. the republicans are not closing the deal on the senate. we are going to peter barnes. we could be looking at a mirror image of what we have seen already. the repeat image of the last four years. democratic president, democratic senate red republican house. if anyone expect them all to play together, may i introduce my 10-year-old boy and 9-year-old boy. i will leave it at that. you see us, at the start of the day. on the company phone list that's a few names longer. you see us bank on busier high

, the ballot initiative process in california is so famous. i do want to say that california had a couple of controversial ones here, 1, they did not vote down the death penalty, still allowed in california. 2, it looks like they passed a tax measure to make california the most taxed state in the union. so that's controversial here in california. a bit of a surprise, considering the economy here in the golden state isn't the best. but you mention the process, the ballot process across the country. yes, definitely, same-sex marriage and marijuana both faired very well at the ballot box. maine passed it, as well as maryland and washington, all passing referendums, allowing for same-sex marriage. they legalized it again in maine, maryland and washington, and an amendment to vote against it in minnesota is too close to call at this hour. meantime, to the medical marijuana front, we know that two big states here that passed the medical marijuana were -- lost you here, montana. and in oregon, it's failing. the interesting vote with marijuana was the fact that colorado and washington allowed it
in santa barbara, california. caller: hello. good morning. i guess my comment is, and kind of glad that the spectacle of elections are over. and maybe we can start to focus on some of the serious issues that still remain. i notice you just made a comment that reid had put out an olive branch to john boehner and mitch mcconnell. i am hoping that at some point in the future that may be c-span can run some segments on the article 5 convention. i really think that we needed to a convention of state delegates to deliberate over certain issues that none of the candidates talked about. i am very concerned about proprietary source codes and electronic voting machines. i am concerned about voter fraud, i am concerned about corporate control of what makes it out of a committee to the floor for a vote and what does not. my comment is, am glad the elections are over. i hope it can start to address some serious issues. host: that is john in santa barbara. usa today lead editorial -- voters can obama a subdued second term mandate. barack obama is election in 2008 made history purity become the f

, illinois, california, and new york, the democrats are going to pick up 104 electoral college there and they did nothing there except go there for fund-raisers. that just shows you how sure we have of these states that are so blue and so red. but it's those nine states that we're talking about. that's what it's going to come down to, those nine battleground states and they are all-- with the possible exception of ohio-- all within the margin of error right now. >> pelley: norah, what do you see going into election tonight? >> one of the things i think is interesting is how much of the country has voted today before election day, the so-called early vote. it's been growing over the years. today we've seen more than 30 million people have turned out at the polls. interestingly enough, scott, the battleground state where this early vote has turned out. look at this. colorado, 77% has already voted. nevada. 72%. north carolina, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the result
. this cloud coverage will continue towards northern california. and this continues from the northern california region. we will not see rainfall but it will be lingering. overnight temperatures will be just a little bit warmer with the futurecast showing in the 40's for the 7:00 a.m. our. i'd think we could even see 30's. by noon, we could see widespread 60s. we will see more of the 70's in the north bay. however, taking a look at the north bay temperatures we will see even 30's and it happened, and vallejo. and in-napa toward 49 degrees in san francisco. '60s and '70s with another nice afternoon. pleasanton, and also 70's and the san mateo region. with a look a your extended forecast mild and even warm as we go towards thursday cooler temperatures. in advance of that ring system. it looks like we will mainly see showers conditions with that-rainy system but possibly heavy rainfall. we will keep you posted as we go towards the end of the week. >> checking the tuesday evening traffic along the golden gate bridge. traffic looking decent. look at the bay bridge toll plaza at no problems
. california voters face a tough choice at the poll today. raise taxes or get hit with massive budget cuts. it's an issue that would have nationwide ramifications. but first, here's a look at what's happening in the world and what we have been covering here on "cbs this morning." >> after all the rallies, after the millions of dollars of ads, it all comes down to you. >> this is the day when voters choose the next president of the united states. >> early voting has really been key to the obama campaign strategy. they are leading in the early vote in almost every battleground state. >> one day away from a fresh start. one day away from the first day of a new beginning. >> i talked to a top campaign ad last night. he said romney was confident and that they're feeling good. >> the election may be already over, actually, and we don't know it. >> it's going to be a narrow race. we're even or ahead in nearly every one of these battleground states. >> you know the governor like i do, he's not someone to sit around until the job is done. >> the nor'easter is sure to make life harder for sandy's victim
